Vewy Intewesting....

Thanks to Ith, a fun little test (registration required).

I am 68% Feminine, 32% Masculine.

Specifics of my "Masculine" Side:
You scored in the mid-range of liking sports compared to other people. You're physically active, but it's not an obsession. You may be more of a spectator than a player when it comes to sports. When making choices about how you spend your time, there are occasions when you really want to be active and at other times you'd rather be more sedentary. You may get competitive at times, but it's not a defining quality.

True for the most part. I am actually quite competitive, but it isn't limited to sports. I just like to win. Mature, I know.

The Breath Freshener

You are Spearmint.
You are quick-witted and sharp. You pay close
attention to details and you can tell what your
friends are feeling. You are always the first
to understand a joke and you are valued for
your insight and advice. However, you
sometimes isolate yourself from other people,
afraid to share your own feelings.
Most Compatible With: Cinnamon

Which Tic-Tac Flavor Are You?

Some Questions

1.Please describe for my readers the essence of mu-nuvia, and its importance to the greater blogosphere.

Mu-Nu is the best supported host site around.

2.You list Pink Lady Apples as a favorite food. Describe the taste sensation of this rare treat.

Simple: sweet, crisp, and a distinctly feminine name.

3.Compared to Rusty, Robbo and Steve (llama-butchers), you seem rather normal, as those are the only mu-nu vian blogs I read regularly, are you more the exception than the rule, or vice verse?

Ummm, I don't know. Are we at MuNu that exceptionally different in terms of normalcy? I really don't know.

4.What did you do to cause Glenn to cry? Did it involve saving a puppy from his nefarious grasp?

I joined The Alliance and created a quote. However, it would be my tremendously affective writing that would cause Ol' Glenn to cry. Or maybe the lack of quality in my writing....

5.Describe your favorite TV shows this season. If you don’t watch TV, tell us about a book that you’ve read and highly recommend.

Girl Meets God. Fabulous, lyrical writing of a Jewish girl who becomes a Protestant Christian. She sees such rich connection between the faiths, and finds such a self-depracting way to tell her story so the reader at once relates and yet, with her, desires to rise above the limitations our common humanity imposes on us. I laughed. I reflected. I wondered. Not many religious books are so beefy without overloading theology.

And, because I can never read just one, The Unthinkable Thoughts of Jacob Green, written by Joshua Braff. It is a hysterical and poignant coming-of-age story of a young boy who must come to terms with his temperamental and arbitrary father.

Thanks for the interview, Jon.

A Little of This and a Bit of That

Create your own :D

For those who have small children, I don't know how you could've avoided reading The Very Hungry Catepillar. Guess what? Eric Carle and his wife founded a Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA (named after himself, of course).

Ooooh, I think I'm turning Japenese.

Purple is pretty (snaps to Special K).

So feminine and unique.

Life Is Good

At least at the moment :)

Home early, sour apple martini in hand, cat in lap, listening to Los Lonely Boys on the stereo. I'll get to making dinner eventually -- ham steak, cheese grits, broiled green beans in olive oil and sea salt. And there were pressies in the mail from a friend of a stone coaster with a wolf engraved on it, and silver wolf earrings (yes, I like wolves)
